Farther


The comparative "farther" occurs only once in the Old Testament (Ec 8:17), and thrice in the New Testament (Mt 26:39; Mr 1:19; 10:1), and in each case is replaced in the Revised Version (British and American) by another word or phrase. The Revised Version (British and American), on the other hand, has "its farthest height" for "the height of his border" (Isa 37:24), and "his farthest lodging-place" for "the lodgings of his borders" (2Ki 19:23).
